We all appreciate these lights every time we knock on a friend’s door after the sun goes down. Ceiling lights come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They give off a great deal of light with a single fixture. At GT Design & Landscape, we love to hang them over our covered patios for late night family barbeques or game night with friends.


If you don’t have a covered outdoor entryway or patio, wall lights are another awesome way to shed light over a large area, and see who is at your door. There are still a variety of options for these lights

Landscape and Path
